For a pianist, the instrument is like a mirror reflecting the artist's true essence. What is it like to see yourself in that mirror in front of an audience? What are the joys and dangers of classical piano as an art form? And why is it that we go to hear classical pianists perform live instead of listening to a CD? We talk about this and many other things with a well-known, New York-based classical pianist, Ilya Itin. Original air date: April 10, 2015 on NTV America. IN RUSSIAN.
